Crochet creations

Somewhere in between design projects, website redesign (yes, it finally is coming soon!), end-of-school madness and pursuing several art opportunities, I found time to do a little shopping. Imagine that. My friend Robin has a completely gorgeous etsy shop called Well of Creations. She crochets one-of-a-kind pieces including totes, yoga mat bags, wrist cuffs, headbands and the most charming business card/coin holders like the one you see above (that's mine, but I bet Robin would make you one like it if you asked nice ; ) Many of her items feature personal touches like that hand painted flower patch.

Check out Robin's shop and tell me she doesn't have an eye for rich and unique color combinations. I'm ready to purchase a yoga mat and carry it to my pretend yoga class, just so I can buy this bag for it.

We're especially loving the flower headbands. They tie in the back so one size really does fit all.

Finding a headband that stays put and fits plus "is comfy/doesn't itch/bother my head/looks stylish and cool" is truly a challenge so these were pretty exciting finds.

Robin is also sponsoring a fundraiser. All proceeds from her wrist cuffs go to educating impoverished girls in India. She's been featured on the msnbc news feed here.

Just in case you needed another excuse to shop.
